I am on the verge of buying a new hard disk but before I do that I wanted to exhaust all of the possible troubleshooting I can do before giving up on my 1.5 year old disk.
So my hard drive started acting weird probably a month ago. From time to time my pc would suddenly restart and display a message "boot mgr missing". I know that message means that the pc cant detect an os. I would be able to fix it by unplugging and plugging the sata cord from the hard drive.
I have ruled out the possibility that it was the os because I checked the bios and my hdd wasnt there. I ruled out the sata cord because I had a spare and it still happens after replacing it. I also ruled out the sockets from my mobo because I also tried plugging it on other sata sockets. It started happening more often.
I checked the hdd health in defraggler and it said that my hdd was healthy, performed tests with sea tools and there were still no errors. Soooo do you guys think my hdd is about to die or can I still save it?
